Dallas Band Gives Me An Excuse To Post the Tales of the Black Freighter Trailer

Tales of the Black Freighter, the comic-within-a-comic that appeared in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ (rightly) celebrated Watchmen, was notably absent from the film adaptation. At least in theaters. It was produced as a separate animated short, and it’s on DVD now — and, actually, has been since late March. Around Christmastime, you can buy a new version of Watchmen with the Black Freighter footage woven in, and I, of course, plan to. What does this have to do with Dallas, you ask? Well, one of the directors of Black Freighter, Daniel DelPurgatorio (great name) is also the man responsible for the striking artwork on the last two albums by the Paper Chase, Now You Are One of Us and Someday This Could All Be Yours, Vol. 1. Why am I telling you now? Because I just found out.
